I met my best friend, Darla, for lunch yesterday. It was so funny, every time we meet up something bazaar happens. When we were in line paying, my friend used her Target card to pay, and I used my Walgreens card to pay haha. I guess we were anxious to visit and catch up with each other. The lady said to me, "I don't think this will work here," and I laughed and said, "oh, it was right next to my card so I gave you the wrong one."
Jess, she won't be able to make the baby shower, so she gave me your gift with a book. The wrapping is so pretty, sparkly pink.
We are asking for children's books instead of a card for the baby shower. I think that will be so nice for Jess to be able to read these books to her little one. And since she's a teacher, she can read some of them to her students as well. Nel slipped this little note along with the invitation when she sent them out.
My friend sent me this picture of us back in the day.
Busy busy getting ready for the shower. There's still a few more things left to do. I'll show you some pictures of the fun day soon.
It was a tradition at our school to sell mums during the Homecoming week. Any one who wanted to buy a Mum for that special someone could, and they would be delivered to their classroom sometime during the school day. It was fun to see all the people walking around with Mums pinned to their shirts and dresses...and even more exciting to get one. These Mums were not small, but huge, and it took careful skill pinning them so they didn't droop all day. It got us in the spirit of the Homecoming week and the upcoming football game. Mums have always reminded me of Fall, and when I saw them at the store the other day, I couldn't help but stop and appreciate.
Us bloggers are pretty brave, if you think about it. We write, we create, we take pictures, and then we hit the publish button. Sure, we can delete it all, change our words, but most of us don't. We never know the outcome our posts will have on the readers, yet we write from the heart. It looks a lot easier than it is, doesn't it? With the music we add and and the links we provide and the pictures we share, there's a lot that goes into getting a post published........but it is our passion. I remember one of the very first blogs I visited, Dear DaisyCottage. Me and the girls loved it! We anxiously awaited Kim's next post, especially Nel. Kim had a way of writing, and her cottage pictures were the most charming we had ever seen. I never commented early on, but I visited daily. It became part of our routines. We just loved her. Keep sharing your blogs, my friends. I learn something from you every day - about the flowers, about the projects you're working on, about your travels, about scripture, about home décor, about nature, about art, and about the world.
